A flat renovation on Colle Oppio in Rome has allowed PuntoZero studio to generate the buen retiro atmosphere sought by the clients by blending a traditional local color palette with a sober and elegant materiality of shapes. The interior design composes a dynamic sequence between the rooms, where the owner’s art collection and the few selected furnishing elements stand out.
Running all across the house, a bench redefines the wall thickness, bringing continuity to the common areas of the flat by configuring a fil rouge that frames the works of art and the windows overlooking the Roman landscape.
The domestic character on which the designers worked aims to develop a dialogue between modern and traditional living where, as the architects declared: “we played with the flows and glimpses of the living area, creating continuity between the soft living area, the dining area and the kitchen, which are connected by openings, passages, raised platforms”.
The white resin cement flooring emphasises the fluid transition between spaces, by incorporating portions of graniglia (grit), that echoing the existing traditional finishes of the flat and, like carpets, outline chromatic enclaves that resitute their peculiar light shade to the rest of the interior around.
Finally, the blend of classicism and modernity returns in the design choices concerning fixed furnishings, where marble and lacquering shape the different rooms’ identities and sceneries.
